House Democrats announced Friday that Robert Mueller’s public hearing planned for July 17 would be delayed until July 24 to allow more time for questioning.

The House Judiciary Committee will convene on July 24 at 8:30am with Special Counsel Mueller testifying in public for three hours. After a brief break, the House Intelligence Committee will convene for additional public testimony beginning at 12:00 pm.
